About Lewy Body Dementia

Lewy bodies are abnormal deposits of a protein that build up in areas of the brain.  This build up may interfere with important physiological functions greatly impacting quality of life.    
Lewy Body dementia sufferers often experience visual hallucinations.  In other words, they see things others cannot see due to changes in the part of the brain involved in vision.  These patients have trouble controlling their movements, behaviors and emotions. Alongside these changes, patients with Lewy Body dementia often have trouble remembering things, experiencing confusion and disorganization.

About the Study Medication

Although the exact cause of Lewy Body dementia is not fully understood, there are attempts being made to possibly change the course of illness using a new class of investigational medications.  The Northwest Clinical Research Center is involved in investigating the utility of these potential medications and seeking volunteers to participate in the clinical trial.

Prerequisites

For all of our dementia studies, a study partner or caregiver is required.  The role of a caregiver is vital for evaluating the study medication.  The caregiver must be willing and able to attend study visits when required.
